The Isabel Crag is a large south-east facing cliff which has many routes along its rather broken length. Unfortunately most of the routes are line-less and are not of the quality found elsewhere in the Mussara area. The one sector worth attention is the Mosaic Wall which offers a few quality steep wall pitches. These are in the shade in the afternoon and could best be combined with a couple of routes on Lo Raval which can be reached along the base of the cliff line in around 10 minutes. Guidebook page 64.
